Here you would usually have a lengthy paragraph full of stylistic devices, poetic-like language and whatnot. Unlike Michel Foucault’s, my writing does not have to be incomprehensible nonsense to be taken seriously (I hope), so here’s what this meeting will be about: This will be a small workshop in which we analyze and interpret works of three widely recognizable American hip hop artists and attempt to frame their ideas within the broader context of American culture.
Chosen Works:
Doja Cat – Kiss Me More
